_______.-~=•[ ENZO THE DRAGON ]•=~-._______

The long awaited... much anticipated... over-hyped... rumored to be lost forever... winning MSI Dream Build!!!

IT WAS FEATURED BY MSI ON FACEBOOK AND TWITTER!!!


First, this is not my build! Seriously PCPP users and staff... this is dedicated to you! This is YOUR build. Yes, you, reading this right now... built for you, because of you. Thanks and enjoy!


A brief history of time Jipster • His MSI Dream Build • And it's inception

Way back... oh... say... 1998. There was a boy, an overpriced Gateway pre-built (thanks mom), and a dream. That little eighty pound 13 year-old tried his best to upgrade the family computer for better gaming performance. He doubled the RAM from 512MB to a whole GB... added an extra fan... and even swapped out the GPU for some VooDoo card with a lot more of... ahh... something... dunno... it just sounded good to him. It didn't matter, it was better than before and he was living the dream as he knew it. He gamed hard on the MSN Gaming Zone (Midtown Madness 1 & 2 usually) via his spare phone line and premium 56k dial-up modem. It was glorious.

Fast-forward almost 20 years later and things had changed. That boy became a man older and dreams were put on hold. Priorities were realigned, a family was started, reality set in, and life slapped him hard in the face. A lowly Dell Pentium 4 became his sole connection to what would soon be the gateway (Mooo! =P) to an undiscovered country... a land of gods... a whole new race... the Glorious PC Master Race! Flashes of greatness began to slowly emerge from the depths of PC despair. More RAM and an SSD revived life into a nearly decade old PC and Intel chip. But sadly, with RAM for the 32bit XP OS maxed at 3.5GB, (well 4GB, but only 3.5 usable... man that sounds familiar) a wall of dissatisfaction was hit.

Thanks in part to a constant barrage of Newegg emails he stumbled upon a previously unknown website... a site where dreams come true... a community of wonderful, helpful, knowledgeable people... where the sky is the limit (well bank account actually =P)... PCPARTPICKER.COM! Go forward another year and an AMD budget build was erected, an online presence established, and hours upon hours were wasted spent trolling enjoying a fantastic community in seek of super cool useless bonus points.

Little did he know, but that young mans dreams were about to become a reality... a dragon (MSI)... a contest... a website... a Jipster... 500+ legitimate users....they all combined like some super cheesy mighty morphing mega-zoid to create something great. The battle for his dreams was not an easy one... cheaters... whiners... losers... there were plenty... but he emerged victorious and with all, most some of his dignity intact. The rest they say... is PCPP history.


Custom Work • Notable Additions • Performance Upgrades

Yes, I used the NZXT Manta for my my build and not the Phanteks Enthio EVOLV Mini ITX case in my guide. Two reasons... it was a brand new case and GPU airflow. The Phanteks case, while beautiful and still probably preferred IMO over the Manta, has "OK to poor" air flow to the GPU. It's just a product of that form factor and not really a design flaw. I wanted to see how the steps taken in the design of the larger Manta ITX case improved overall airflow. Hey, I like to keep things cool... good airflow turns me on.

NZXT used the Ferrari 458 as inspiration when designing the Manta case (see also INSPIRATIONAL BUILD ALBUM). I decided to play off that theme for the build. I originally designed numerous logos and window "ghost dragon" decals, some big, some small. In the end, my true style won out and I kept I things minimalistic and clean.


SO HERE IT IS PCPP!!!

  • I present to you my dream build. Literally none of it would have been possible without the community on this great website. PCPP is a thing of beauty really... but, without all of you, and just like that red headed kid that lives across the street, it would lack a soul =P


Disclaimers and notes:

* Built prior to release of GTX 1080
* If you want part reasoning/explanation go to the original Build Gude that started it all.
* Main component budget was capped @ $2000 USD with additional monies spent on extra's and custom mods. See also...
* Contest Page
* Posting was delayed FOREVER... please accept my sincerest of apologies for the wait :-)

EDIT:

I just threw in some photo-shopped pics at the end... messing around with an app on my phone. Some simulated RGB lighting in there that looks neat...

Is that a jipster reference?

FHD32423 3 points 5 months ago

BTW Your build will be a nice addition to The PCPP CPU/GPU Survey :)

jipster69 submitter 4 Builds 4 points 5 months ago

Nice... didn't know that existed o_O

FHD32423 2 points 5 months ago

lol I was actually going to post a blank comment but PCPP didn't let me to do so.I felt that this build has so much personality,the carbon fiber vinyl,the 458 reference etc. that I don't need to make any comment about it.

jipster69 submitter 4 Builds 3 points 5 months ago

LOL... coincidentally... that's a double jipster reference.

Back when I used to comment on every build... I would sometimes place a comment with just a period . on lengthy builds... then go back and edit it to be meaningful. So there was brief moments where that's all you'd see.

Also... the original [No comment] comment =P

crookz_n_castlez 3 Builds 3 points 5 months ago

I hope people will read the full description to truly appreciate this build. Great Job! Everything about this build is clean!I wish you made a video of the making of this beauty!

One question though, How did you do the etching on the side panel window?

jipster69 submitter 4 Builds 2 points 5 months ago

One question though, How did you do the etching on the side panel window?

It wasn't etching... I almost did, but I didn't want to jack it up. Its vinyl window decal sheets you can print at home. I couldn't get it perfect so I killed the mod. I considered going down to a sign shop and having one made, but the cost of a single job is high. In the end, opted for a clean window... although I loved the ghost dragon.

crookz_n_castlez 3 Builds 3 points 5 months ago

Yeah I loved that vinyl too. Either way, great build and congrats!

Xizt 1 Build 3 points 5 months ago

The dream build needed to be well documented =P

I might add some photo-shopped ones too... simulated RGB LEDs?

Drachenherz 3 Builds 3 points 5 months ago

It's red. It's black. It has dragons on it.

I approve. Have an upvote.

No, really, great work of passion, love it!

jipster69 submitter 4 Builds 4 points 5 months ago

No, really, great work of passion, love it!

Glad my passion for building shows...

...just need to find a way to make money doing it... and exploit it.

Drachenherz 3 Builds 3 points 5 months ago

Oh, I know money passion when I see it. :-)

Sad thing is, passion's usually costing money, not making it... sigh

jipster69 submitter 4 Builds 3 points 5 months ago

passion's usually costing money, not making it...

Melding both together in a way that helps others or makes the world a better place is where the secret of life long happiness exists...

MannyPCs 3 points 5 months ago

Damm Jipster how do you steal all the popularity on this site I mean each comment you say will have tons of replies did you donate $5000 to PCPP or something?

On a side note, this build is beautiful, I mean just unique, Manirelli would have to have some prejudice against you not to Feature this :)

I hope you enjoy your Powerful high tier Computer

I guess ill give you a +1

CONGRATS!! I wrapped my InWin 303 in vinyl (http://pcpartpicker.com/b/jxhqqs) so I know EXACTLY how much of a ball ache it can be... 10 hours is probably understating, knowing how long I spent on mine! Love the end result though, the attention to detail really shows, and I love seeing builds that go the extra mile like this. :)

If you did a custom loop in this I suspect it would be branded pure pr0n and therefore illegal. ;)

jipster69 submitter 4 Builds 2 points 5 months ago

That top panel though OMG! Rediculous.

jipster, I think at this point you're basically everyone's favorite builder... Precisely because of builds like this. And just being an awesome online personality.

I say online because I'm not sure you're actually real. For all I know, you're a PC building ball of energy from Futurama. That comments on everything... Which is why we like you.

jipster69 submitter 4 Builds 1 point 5 months ago

I was always wondering if we'd get to see this beauty. Glad it finally made it's long awaited appearance. Guess you have to wait for the really sexy builds ;) Gorgeous build mate :)

jipster69 submitter 4 Builds 1 point 5 months ago

Good things are worth waiting for... I fell I love with my now wife at a very young age. It didn't last long then, but I watched her disappear and marry someone else... Years later she came back into my life and I've never been happier.

Maybe that's not quite like my build... anyways... Thanks!

A little different. But good things do take time and plenty of chance and opportunity play a part as well. :)

I'm so glad you were finally able to finish this. I wasn't too active back in those days on PCPP, but I still am glad that this was completed. You've earned a +1 from me(I give those out way too often anyway, so don't put much into it).

Enzo Ferrari will be proud to see another Ferrari inspired builds.

what will be more sick is that the moment you press the start button, you hear the Ferrari 458 Speciale engine start up exhaust note. Prob the next idea for modding the power up instead of the usual POST beeps.

Razorwing02 1 Build 2 points 5 months ago

Can you edit the parts list to mark all the things that were $0 as purchased? I need to know how much this was.... one of the best builds I have ever seen. Makes me look over at my rig, rush over to Amazon, throw a ton of stuff in the shopping cart, then sigh and delete everything.

jipster69 submitter 4 Builds 1 point 5 months ago

Can you edit the parts list to mark all the things that were $0 as purchased? I need to know how much this was....

Actually every build posted has a link next to the part list just for this situation... it's above and to the right of the list and looks like this...

View full price breakdown <--- the actual link from this build page BTW

From that new page... click "edit this partlist" on the right, then "remove all custom prices"

I_Need_Big_Drink 1 Build 2 points 5 months ago

I thought about hydro dipping my upcoming build in a carbon fiber pattern. I'm so torn on it, and seeing builds with this style make me love it, but hate it too. Can't decide if it's cool or tacky, at least in yours it fits the car theme perfectly!

jipster69 submitter 4 Builds 2 points 5 months ago

It can be done wrong... I was worried about it's reception being there is so much real-estate with it. I think its just subtle enough to still look good.

I_Need_Big_Drink 1 Build 2 points 5 months ago

Yes, and the pinstripe takes just enough attention away from it so in the end the presentation just...works. Again, great job. But I think my build (evolv atx glass) will look better in a glossy black custom paint. Do you know any good sites that will offer to do a custom paint job or do you suggest I do it myself and save myself the shipping?

I_Need_Big_Drink 1 Build 2 points 5 months ago

nvm, did my own research and found a local place with great reviews that does powder coating for custom projects ;)

jipster69 submitter 4 Builds 2 points 5 months ago

Nice... Was gonna suggest a few options. To save money, you could try to plasti-dip it yourself and just remove it if you don't like it. However, you can never go wrong with professional work ;-)

You've inspired me to carbon wrap my manta. Tell me, how did you manage to wrap the curved panels without the wrap developing air pockets. Also amazing build and congrats on the feature! :)

jipster69 submitter 4 Builds 1 point 5 months ago

You've inspired me to carbon wrap my manta.

I said 10+ hours... but honestly I have no clue. Could be 20 hours.

Tell me, how did you manage to wrap the curved panels without the wrap developing air pockets.

Wax on wax off grasshopper... takes a lot of care and precision. You should have no bubbles before heating honestly. The top panel required I apply only between the two accent lines... heat that area... then apply the rest to the panel and NOT heat the middle again. I learned that after a seemingly successful application that lifted when heated.

Also amazing build and congrats on the feature! :)

Thank you!

This is seriously amazing. I think this will go down as one of the best Ferrari or automotive themed PC builds ever. The CF wrap job is spectacular. I did it my build and I can totally commiserate, it was a huge PIA. I highly suggest you look into VVIVID Vinyl's Epoxy High Gloss Black Carbon Vinyl Automotive Wrap if you do a new build. IMO it is the best CF wrap out there.

If you do go custom loop in the future, I have a couple of recommendations. The Hardwarelabs Nemesis GTS is the BEST 30cm thick (slim) radiator out there. I would not use ANYTHING else in an ITX case. Second, while EK is certainly a terrific choice for blocks, I would also consider Watercool's Heatkiller line. The Heatkiller IV Pro CPU block is terrific as is the GPU block (don't know if it is compatible with MSI GPUs though).

Volkov 1 Build 2 points 5 months ago

Well I just made a mess in my pants. Unbelievably well done. +1 + Infinity Does the carbon wrap have an adhesive backing? Or is it an epoxy/glue you have to use? Also, is it hard to smooth out around corners, bumps, etc. Thinking about adding some silver carbon wrap to my build as I have the MSI X Power Titanium MB and GTX 1070 Quicksilver =) Any input would be helpful. Thanks and again gratz on the win and epic build. Now off to get new pants. I'll send you the bill =)

jipster69 submitter 4 Builds 2 points 5 months ago

It was from eBay... 3M stuff I believe. It's adhesive backing... no mess. There are pictures somewhere in the back part of the 205 that show the difficult window panel application. I chose to wrap the edges around which required many careful little cuts to prevent lifting/bubbling around the edge. Others than that, just apply from the middle and spread out ward. I use my hand with a clean microfiber. To finish you should carefully heat treat it to tighten the vinyl. Hair dryer works. Keep in mind if you have difficult areas with curves... like that top panel on the Manta... you will have to heat in sections or not at all. Cause I stupidly heated that one up and it lifted off the two accent lines. I had to do it over with that in mind, applying and heating only the middle between the lines first.

Volkov 1 Build 2 points 5 months ago

Yeah I saw the cuts you had made to get around the tabs and figured it helps with bubbling. I have the same issues with thermal labeling with the bubbling and figured the vinyl wouldn't be much different. I found some Metro silver wrap for $8 a sheet for 24in x 48in on Amazon. Looks like that's a decent price for that size. Appreciate the info. I love the carbon fiber look on pretty much everything. Cars, PC's, bikes, etc. I can't wait to get this done.
